A large open air mixed onsen is the highlight of this hotel. The open air mixed onsen is down the slope from the hotel near a river. It's got fantastic views of the snowy mountains. The hotel provides a short cable car ride for guests' access to this onsen (a very special experience). We stayed in Japanese rooms which are... More

This is the best hotel of my Japan Chubu Trip in Nov 2014. It's unforgettable! I've booked this hotel thur Japanese's online agent, price incl. dinner and breakfast. 2 hotel staffs served us when we arrived the front door and they help us to park our car in their private carpark. As we have a booking, they all knew our... More

As I arrived here in the evening, the first thing after putting the suitcase in the room is eating. I went to the dining room for Keiseki which is a multiple-course Japanese food in traditional style. The food is great. Sashimi is fresh. The breakfast was also nice. After that, I went to Onsen. After walking from the main building... More

If you love to have hot spring in outdoor especially during the winter time, you must visit their outdoor onsen - the larger one as I haven't seem before. However, the rooms are too old and do not expect any restaurant will be opened during midnight and just can buy the snack from vending machine if you hungry before go... More

Air Bath(Roten-buro)No.1in arounnd here,or Tyubu-state.But rooms are too OLD,Dinner not excelent,staff are veryvery kindful.I hope supend the money for Hard-Side! 洋室があるなど、値段も手ごろで、1万-1.5万の予算の方なら文句ない。しかしせっかくここまで来たのならもうちょっとなんとかならないのか?もう15年前からここに泊まること10回以上。露天ぶろまでのケーブルカーができたところまでよかったが、ハード面が弱い。弱すぎる!活かしきれていない!実はこのホテル、ソフト面はめちゃくちゃ高いのだ!!外国人従業員を以前はちょくちょく見かけたが、今回はいなかった。またベテランぞろいの仲居さんは、ここらで一番の気のききよう。 しかし、料理や部屋が厳しい。料理は飛騨牛のコースの割には圧倒的に飛騨牛が少なく、釜飯かと思ったら、中身は白ごはん、せめて山菜を。ちょっとした小料理ももっともっと飛騨のものがほしい。おきまりの川魚は健在。朝食ももう少しレベルアップしてほしい。ここらのホテルでは常識の「飛騨牛ふりかけ」もほしいところだ。また極めて珍しいが卵掛けごはんも、いつものやまかけに加えてあればうれしい。 部屋はとにかく古い、室内はなつかしの黒電話のウグイス色バージョン。一瞬テレビ¥100かと・・・・とにかく昭和のにおいがする。廊下のある部分にはアンモニア臭さえする、廊下の端の休憩スペースもなんか物足りない。室内の椅子は堅い。また、マッサージが高い!60分¥4000が妥当。しかし何度も言うが、仲居さんのサービスは特級だ。とにかくハード面にお金をかけてほしい。 中国人観光客はここいらじゃあ当たり前。まったく文句はない。彼らはうわさとは異なり、非常にマナーがいい。いずれ欧米からもオリンピックを契機に来るだろう。しかしここもまたWiFiが弱すぎる、みんな困っている。とにかくハード面が甘い。飛騨や高山のホテルや旅館はとにかくWiFiが弱い。 ケーブルを降りてからも段差が数段ある、館内のお土産げコーナー前のスロープも急すぎる。またビリヤードのある団らんスペースに行くスロープもない。また手すりという手すりが館内、室内いたるところにない。これではお年寄りが寄り付かなくなる。 一番の売りの大露天風呂も脱衣所の隣にちょっとした7席ほどの洗髪コーナーがほしい。足湯はこれまた、昔はなかったのだが、なかなかいい。しかし如何せんぬるすぎる!とにかくもったいないホテル。 中庭の無駄なプールをなんとか上手に利用してほしい。 あと、一台しかない?車いすが壊れている。前輪に油要。また買ってほしい。 ぼくせいしゃのアイスも、種類を増やしてほしい。 駐車スペースをなんとかしてほしい! 以前、このホテル内のワンランク上の和室に泊まらせていただいたが、その部屋はとてもいい。

You cannot fault with the food and the staff. They both exceed our expectations. Every dish served is an edible art piece. The staff are afraid that they don't help you enough. The spa is open 24 hours.They even have a free shuttle service in the morning to take hotel guest to the Shinotaka ropeway.

I found this ryokan from some reviews through the web at the very last minute and managed to book it through booking.com. It was a choice well made as I enjoyed my stay throughly at the ryokan. The ryokan was easy to find. What struck me most was the welcome greeting when you stepped into the ryokan. Even the shoe... More
